A walk on the beach is the perfect early morning way to start the day…hope to find a few more white smooth white stones to add to my collection. I use them for paperweights, in piles in tablesettings to hold candles in clear glass jars outside on the picnic table…

It’s still chilly in the evenings, so re-stocking the firewood baskets with bundles of lichen covered branches down from the storms …a good walk around outside down to the boathouse with a wheelbarrow to gather them is a great break from all this paperwork!

An hour in the herb garden now that the frost is over…the chives are coming up already, so a cream cheese and chive omelet and a pot of tea will be perfect for lunch today…

A perfect rainy day project…time to sort out the bookshelves…I promise myself to give one book away for each book I add to my collection, so time to pack up a few boxes to pass along to friends and family and the rest go to the Book Barn in East Moriches for their spring sale…a donation to their historic restoration fund for the Ketcham Inn.

Time for spring cleaning…can’t wait to get the storm windows off and the put the screens up…a sunny day to wash windows with vinegar and warm water and newspapers like my grandmother did!

The snowdrops are out, a sure sign that spring is coming . . . I just read that snowdrops are one of Jane Austen's favorite flowers, too.
